Del Taco Just Dropped A Huevos Rancheros Epic Burrito

Here at Foodbeast, we’re more or less obsessed with all things burrito, and without a doubt we’ve always considered the king of burritos (and breakfasts) to be the Breakfast Burrito. Thus, you can imagine our excitement when Elie was tipped off about the newest ‘rito from Del Taco: the Huevos Rancheros Epic Breakfast Burrito.

I’ve learned from experience that Elie always comes correct with all things Del Taco, because he knows it’s sacred to us lifelong Californians. And when it comes to their newest breakfast offering, DT did not disappoint.

Huevos. Rancheros. Burrito. Oh. My. God.

For starters, Del Taco has taken the classic Huevos Rancheros and made it portable by double-wrapping it with two warm corn tortillas cloaked within a giant flour tortilla (the corn tortillas totally set off the classic Huevos Rancheros flavor). This massive burrito is also stuffed with Mexican chorizo, fresh sliced avocados, slow-cooked pinto beans, scrambled eggs, hand-grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and a roasted chile salsa.

With more than 30 years in the breakfast game, Del Taco knows exactly what they’re doing. The Huevos Rancheros Epic Breakfast Burrito is not only the largest breakfast burrito on the menu, but arguably one of the coolest and most nuanced breakfast burrito concepts on the market. Show me who else makes a Huevos Rancheros burrito. I’ll wait.

Having grown up in Southern California local my whole life, Del Taco has always been a go-to spot after a late night — or for an early morning. Everything on the menu is fuego, so, it was only fitting they added delicious Huevos Rancheros to their menu. (Don’t sleep on their three newly added breakfast rollers though — filled with scrambled eggs, hand-grated cheddar cheese, zesty red sauce and the option to add chorizo sausage or crisp bacon for only a buck.)

Thanks for the tip, Elie.

7 Burrito Styles Everyone Should Know

Burritos. They’re a staple of both Tex-Mex and Mexican Food alike. The reasoning behind their popularity isn’t hard to figure out. After all, who doesn’t love them? You get to stuff a tortilla full of every ingredient your heart desires as long as you can still roll it up.  You may pride yourself a burrito lover, but do you know all the essential types of burritos?

Here are the different burritos you need to know.

Eaten with a knife and fork, this burrito definitely thinks it’s fresher than you.  Covered with melted cheese and smothered in a saucy, spicy red or green “gravy”.  Seems about right, considering this burrito is as large as a turkey.

2. Poncho Burrito

This may be the most conspicuous of burritos, a simple mix of beans, rice and meat. A chain in London, England even serves “Pancho” burritos with lines out the door.  Who says the Brits are bland?

3. Bean and Cheese Burrito

Made popular by taco chains like Taco Bell and Del Taco, this bean and cheese comfort food is the OG of burritos.  Easy on the wallet, but just as easy to make at home with bag of tortillas and a can of Rosarita’s refried beans.

4. Breakfast Burrito

Like chicken and waffles, you almost can’t imagine this combo was once a novelty. Made of eggs, potatoes and sausage, this combo perfectly marries breakfast and dinner… or would it be dinner and breakfast? Either way it’s delicious.

5. “Hapa” International Burrito

Half Hispanic, half Asian, this burrito is 100% delicious.  Fusing the classic poncho burrito with Asian flavors such as fresh fish, Kimchi or Korean BBQ. Thanks to Roy Choi and the Kogi food truck revolution, this cross-cultural dish has increasingly mainstream.

6. The California Burrito

Originally from Southern California, this burrito is typically stuffed with carne asada, sour cream, cheese, salsa, guacamole and  french fries.  The burrito’s origin and popularity is credited to San Diego and surf culture.

7. Chimichanga

Hailing from the dry deserts of Arizona. Chimichangas encompass both the greatness of the south, deep-frying foods and the greatness of the American West, burritos. A definite game changer, this accidental concoction has brought joy to many stomachs.
